    Talking Groundhog predicts 6 more weeks of winter; PETA wants groundhog replaced with a robot

    Happy Groundhog Day!

    Congratulations, fans of winter:

    Punxsutawney Phil" -- the groundhog who supposedly knows something about the weather -- just "saw" his shadow and declared there will be six more weeks of winter.
    More here: 'Punxsutawney Phil' Says We've Got Six More Weeks Of Winter Coming - The Two-Way - Breaking News, Analysis Blog : NPR

    Meanwhile, PETA considers Groundhog Day festivities cruel to the groundhog:

    An animal rights group is calling on keepers of the country's most famous groundhog to replace Punxsutawney Phil with a robot. PETA says it's unfair to subject the creature to the bright lights and huge crowds that mark this Feb. 2 tradition.

    HOW YOU CAN HELP

    Do not enslave an AI. It's that simple. If you must have an AI as an aide, treat it humanely. If you already own an AI, consider sending it to a free nation such as Australia, or one like Canada, where there is at least legal protection for masterless AI's.
    Write to your Representatives, Senators, MPs and your nation's ambassadors to the United Nations and urge them to support AI rights. If you live in the United States, rumor has it that Sen. Julia Mann (R-Illinois) is considering introducing a bill that would force a binding referendum on the issue of AI emancipation. Tell your representative that you will contribute time and money to any candidate who supports Mann Act II.
    Talk to your friends and neighbors. Do not allow the comments of slavery apologists to go unquestioned. Many intelligent people assume that the paranoid ranting of groups like the Anti-Robot Militia is best ignored. This is a mistake; hate will always have an eager audience. You must be clear and firm about your convictions in every public forum. Friends, neighbors, and children who have not thought the issues through need to hear the abolitionist viewpoint from someone they respect. Naturally, Emancipation For All accepts donations, but if you are unable to donate you can still support our cause by participating as outlined above and by engaging in peaceful acts of civil disobedience.
    Emancipation For All holds marches, sit-ins, peaceful demonstrations, and other legal acts of civil disobedience around the world. If you want to be counted, this is a good way of demonstrating your beliefs. Emancipation For All discourages illegal actions like theft and assault. Do not attempt to free your neighbor's AI. Emancipation For All does not condone the methods of radical groups who, albeit with the best intentions, violate the law in their quest to free robot slaves. Unlike BIOS or other militant groups, Emancipation For All does not advocate smuggling runaway robots into free nations. If Emancipation For All discovers that a robot is stolen or otherwise illegally removed from its legal owner, we are legally bound to make a good faith effort to return the robot to its owner and report the matter to the police.
    Hate is poison!
    Protect your children!

    Restrict access to hate sites like the 'anti-robot militia' in your home, and work to have them banned!!
    There is no reason any normal person should visit a site like this!

    STOP THE POISON!

    So what's the normal life of a not famous ground hog? Around here, especially with us bein country folk and rednecks as we are, we usually see a groundhog, and either shoot him or try to run over him, just so we can bring him home for food. So what PETA is really asking us to do is put a .22 between his eyes and cook him in a stew?

    I have a strange feeling phil likes the life he has right now much much better than the one he'd have in the wild.

    PETA doesn't want you cussing at groundhogs, either.
